Ustaritz TripAdvisor review

Perfect position by the port within easy walking distance of many good restaurants and city tour buses. Staff (particularly housekeeping and Bar) great and friendly. Parking outside door excellent. Area is normal Sicily being not the cleanest but never felt threatened in our walking around the town over two days, Hotel is in need of much modernisation (which apparently has started) and, in many cases, redesign. I am thinking predominantly of the top floor. This is a total disaster in terms of comfort, layout, lighting not to mention it is only a buffet that is served. We were given a token for a free drink each but it was limited to a tiny beer or equally tiny prosecco mimosa. We were refused a white wine even which made the whole thing about tawdry! Bedroom was scruffy, adequate size and noisy. Wouuld not return even for its positioon.

Basic but clean

I stayed here with two girl friends for the weekend. I was anxious reading the reviews. I’m glad to say I found it clean with friendly staff. It’s a basic hotel which comes with a budget price tag. It’s about a 30 minute walk from the train station of Palermo Centrale. The old streets are not meant for pulling along my little wheeled cabin bag, best to get a taxi. It’s about 15 minutes into the hustle and bustle of the main city. The rooms are large but basic. Cleaned really well. The beds are firm (which is my preference). The side tables are on an angle so you quickly learn not to put on your glasses or phone as they slide off. The bathroom is well stocked, shower gel, shower caps, intimate wash (to use with the bidet I guess), towels aplenty, and shoe shiner. The shower was ok, difficult to get the right temperature. We overlooked the port, not pretty as such but fascinating watching the ferries and cruise ship. It was relatively quiet apart from the odd emergency vehicle (which seem to struggle to pass the cars, they don’t move!). The A/C is as strong as a gnats fart. It was fine in the 22c of November but I wouldn’t imagine it’d do much in the hot summer. Having said that there were renovations happening in the hotel whilst we stayed. We had a warm welcome from all of the staff who were just lovely. Greeted by their events manager. Be aware there is a city tax to pay on checking out; I paid €6 for 3 nights (I hadn’t expected this). The buffet breakfast had a good range of foods and good coffee. Tried my first persimmon. Great to use the balcony too. If you’re a runner it’s worth knowing that there’s a Saturday morning parkrun a mile away at Foro Italica at 9am. A safe run as a solo female runner to and from the park. We had a mixed experience of food and drink in Palermo, avoid the touristy restaurants. Do your homework on where to eat. We had an amazing lunch at Antica focacceria san Francesco, best Aperol spritz I’ve ever had and a wonderful swordfish pasta. Be aware that many restaurants charge a €2 for each cover. The better restaurants are generally booked up, so prebook for sure.

The hotel staff, especially the manager (?) (Ludmilla) was very helpful. All the staff were very patient with all the foreign guests. It was clean, tidy and the onsite restaurant was very handy - it saved having to go out every evening to find somewhere to eat if you had been out all day long exploring and visiting the wonderful sites of Palermo. The menu was varied each day and the choice of items for breakfast was huge.

Very odd decor but wonderful staff

Big mistakes made with the styling of the hotel. Mirrors fixed at odd angles, "fun" room door numbers which could easily be mis-read & sloping bed headboards (and tables) do not make for an arty hotel. It is not fit for purpose and that's why I've marked you down. It must be so irritating to work here with its odd shapred drawers & storage units. Your guests and your staff deserve better

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the ibis Styles Palermo President. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. At Ibis Styles, we strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; therefore your feedback is very important to us. Please rest assured that we are taking the appropriate measures to address the problem and prevent future occurrence. Regarding the architectural style, we are pleasantly surprised that the style has inspired critics, we want to see it in a positive way. The architect of the building, Santa, is a young woman from Catania who wanted to emphasize the importance of the natural light and open spaces, underlining and repeating the lines of the waves of the sea that we find ourselves in front of the building. Also, we add the street art on the stairs with the impotant theme of the sport and parking with the other really important theme as legacy. We just want ussure You that everything has been set up with an idea and a purpose. Also, we care about it and descript every corner with the particular style. Love or not to love this opera is always our choice. However, we are sure that the unique style of ibis styles remains unrepeatable and highly appreciated by Italian and foreign customers. I mention here the mythical phrase of the architect Santa: "Creating is an Act of Love!" We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Sincerely, GM - ibis styls Palermo President

One of the best in its street

stendek Friends getaway - TripAdvisor review

We all know what Ibis Hotels are like. Big, impressive, clean, majestic...well maybe I exaggerate a bit. The one we stayed in is located in front of Palermo harbour. It means that the view from some rooms and from the breakfast lounge was kind of spectacular. This is the best...or the only. It was four of us who stayed here and were given rooms 118 and 119 on the first floor but facing the back side. The rooms were spacious and quite clean with two big beds that could easily sleep 4 people. The problem was that all night long we could hear the annoying noise of the hotel machinery of the heaters or boilers or airconditioned or who knows what that made our stay a bit uncomfortable. The area around the hotel is not exactly recommendable as it looked old and filthy. So if you travel or have to board a cruiser, perfect; if not...

Dear Guest, It was our pleasure to have you as a guest in our ibis Styles Palermo. We really care about guests’ satisfaction and opinion, regarding the quality of our services. It helps us maintain and even improve our high standards, so that your next stay will be impeccable. You will find the same excellent service at Ibis Styles Catania Acireale, our design hotel in the East Sicilian coast. Sincerely,
